neat idea, serious logistical and legal issues (as have been pointed out). The MOOP issue can be beaten with enough barrier material (2-3 tarp or billboard vinyl layers say covering your entire area, with a large carpeted zone on top of that). The Health Dept. issue is trickier. I imagine even foot ...

I got to speak to Larry (well, actually I answered a question). Jellyfish and his U-Me crew got invited to an Artist's party, but we showed up on the wrong day.

gas golf carts cannot carry much extra weight for long, especially in the deeper dune areas.

...apparently it was also determined through trial and error that the pulse works good during the day (requires ~20 Volunteers to work), but does not work during the night (safety reasons). So, if <20 Volunteers, or night, and no pulse. I also liked the pulse. Much less stress on Driver and Vehicle.
